Former Treasury Official:
Iran’s Economic Benefit from
Nuclear Deal Exaggerated

PJ Media, by Karl Herchenroeder

WASHINGTON -- Iran has not freed up $100 billion in frozen assets as expected under the 2015 nuclear deal and the country’s economic frustrations are now playing out in the streets of Tehran, a former Treasury official told Congress on Wednesday. “This windfall that many predicted has not come to Iran,” Treasury’s former acting undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Adam Szubin, who served under Bush, Obama and briefly Trump, told the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “There never were $100 billion, $150 billion in assets. That’s a make-believe number. Iran’s true benefit from the deal was significant, but it was nowhere

Did you notice Szubin says $100 to $150 Billion is a "make-believe" number, but yet he never tells us what the actual number is. Maybe it was more than $150 Billion maybe is was less, but if he purports to know why not just tell the American People he worked for what the "real number" actually is...Or is he just peddling more make believe BS....

The $.100 billion number is real, but he´s right: it never made its way to the Iranian people. Its now in the coffers of Iranian officials and the terrorists they support. I suspect millions of if got laundered and found its way into the pockets of Obama and his gang as well

We need to mass produce heavy duty "Deep State Detectors". While in most cases the general purpose "BS Detector" works just fine, some of the SOBs are somewhat clever.

100, 150 or 25, a boatload of cash was fraudulently delivered to Iran by a non-American criminal POTUS. Cash, being what it is, can be split many ways and nobody knows except those who do the splitting. Obama doesn´t take all of those lavish vacations and send a kid to Harvard out of the proceeds of his lousy books.

Trump Must Be the Strong Horse Now

Lee Smith´s seminal The Strong Horse: Politics, Power and the Clash of Arab Civilizations (2010) explains how the Arab world typically follows the leader with the most strength and power, i. e. the strong horse. This proclivity for the powerful does not restrict itself to the Middle East, however. Xi Jinping these days is a pretty strong horse. Nor does it even restrict itself to dictators. Winston Churchill may have been the strongest horse of the last hundred years, having led the allies from the brink of defeat to victory in World War II, sometimes through sheer force of will.

Reagan Stevens, a deputy director in the New York Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, was arrested along with two young men on Saturday for illegal weapons possession. The three were sitting in a double-parked car near the scene of a shooting in Queens. The vehicle reeked of marijuana, according to police. A loaded, 9mm semi-automatic pistol with its serial number scratched out was hidden in the car’s glovebox. There was a spent shell casing on the floor near Stevens’ feet in the rear of the 2002 dark red Infiniti SUV, law enforcement sources said. Video reportedly recorded shots being fired from

and tell him he’s fired? That would be cool. Mueller shows for the moment of his lifetime — interrogating the U.S. president — but instead is told to hit the road. President Trump then walks out of the room. That’s some mighty fine reality TV. After today’s raid of Michael Cohen’s home and office, I think it’s fair to consider whether Trump should fire Mueller. However, it’s premature to reach a conclusion. We need to know more. It’s possible that the raid has a legitimate connection to the issue Mueller and his band of anti-Trump partisans is supposed to be investigating —

APALACHICOLA - T.J. Ward was born the year after his grandfather had the throat cancer surgery. T.J. never heard his natural voice. The seaman’s single clap would cut through the salt air on the docks of Apalachicola louder than words could. When he was a boy, T.J. didn’t draw dragons or superheroes. It was pictures of boats, netting and rigging just so. When he was 10, his grandfather named a boat after him. No one ever named a boat for you unless you were old or dead.

A Miami Beach commissioner running for Congress filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging a newly expanded state law that would force her to give up her city seat in order to seek higher office. In a move that carries implications across the state, Kristen Rosen Gonzalez filed a complaint in circuit court, arguing that the new resign-to-run bill signed into law last month by Gov. Rick Scott violates her rights under the state constitution and can´t be applied retroactively. The lawsuit names Scott, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, and Miami Beach City Clerk Rafael Granado as defendants. "This is another example of

Last month, Facebook censored a German historian who posted a message about Islam´s historic impact on Germany. Facebook banned the historian for 30 days, even though 76 percent of Germans agree that Islam does not "belong to Germany." Michael Hesemann, a journalist and Vatican historian with an honorary doctorate for his work in uncovering documents from the Armenian Genocide, posted a message that Facebook said did "not correspond to our community standards." The offensive message was an accurate — if overstated — historical statement. "Islam always plays only one role in the 1700-year-old history of the Christian Occident: the role of

WASHINGTON — Bill Nelson´s word carries weight in Florida. The state´s longest-serving elected official, a man who has spent decades building connections with law enforcement agencies and lawmakers from both parties, is a go-to source for information during big events like Hurricane Irma and the Parkland school shooting. But Florida´s only statewide elected Democrat spread misinformation after the Parkland shooting, and now he´s spreading misinformation about a shooting in Liberty City that claimed the lives of two young people and wounded two more. In a tweet on Sunday night, Nelson cited a Democratic state representative and said "apparently assault weapons [were] used" in

Has craft beer peaked? In one sign that the industry has grown less frothy, more craft breweries closed in 2017 than any time in the past decade. And while the craft beer makers saw more growth in production than the overall market last year, their pace is slowing. A new report by the Brewers Association - a trade association representing small and independent American craft brewers - showed that craft brewers saw a 5 percent rise in production volume in 2017. Yet with that growth comes an increasingly crowded playing field, leading to more closures of small craft breweries. In 2017, there

For some reason, Jews have this thing about people being gassed, so it should come as no surprise that Israel reacted to "Animal Assad´s" (another Trump nickname that should stick) horrendous actions against his own people again before the rest of the world could say "boo" -- or even tut-tut at the Security Council. Israel apparently took the opportunity to do some damage to a Syrian airbase used by the Iranians for drone attacks and other mayhem aimed at Haifa and Tel Aviv. The IDF also may have gotten some Russians into the bargain -- a trifecta against the new axis

Remember getting "Rick rolled?" Around a decade ago, we as a society decided it was funny to email unsuspecting coworkers links titled things like "you won´t believe this!" — only to have the opener of the link subjected to the 1987 song stylings of Rick Astley. (If you don´t know what I´m talking about, this is a pretty good rundown of the meme.) The League of Conservation Voters has decided it´s never gonna give the meme up. In a new campaign aimed at Gov.

If you eat a really hot pepper, you expect pain. A lot of pain. In addition to the feeling that you have just put a live coal in your mouth, you may weep, vomit and wonder where in your life you took a wrong turn. You don’t expect a headache so intense and immediate that it sends you to the emergency room. But that’s what happened to a 34-year-old man who turned up at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown, N.Y., with what clinicians call a thunderclap headache. His problems began when he ate a whole Carolina Reaper — the hottest

Back in 2002, when I ran the credit strategy team at Credit Suisse, I invited one of America´s most prominent Reagan-era supply-siders to speak to our research team. The sickening decline of American industrial employment was just beginning, but no-one seemed to care. The famous economist (whose name I suppress because he is a friend) suggested that the United States didn´t need ANY manufacturing employment at all. We would do the design and other folks would do the dirty work. Boy, did we need Donald Trump back then. Instead, we had George W. Bush. The US borrowed trillions of dollars

House Speaker Paul Ryan has privately told confidantes he does not plan to run for re-election this year, multiple reports said Wednesday. The Wisconsin Republican could announce his decision "soon," according to the news outlet. The GOP faces a tough fight to hold on to a House majority in November amid Democratic enthusiasm and opposition to some policies pushed by President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress. Axios first reported Ryan´s decision. Ryan achieved his long-held goal of overhauling the U.S. tax code in December. Once he did so, he felt comfortable leaving a job that had become taxing due

Senate Republicans were surprised to learn Wednesday that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, plans to try to advance legislation that would prevent President Trump from firing special counsel Robert Mueller. A bipartisan group of four senators on Tuesday introduced a bill that would specifically prevent Trump from firing Mueller, whose investigation the president has labeled a "witch hunt." The bill would among other things, "ensure that the Special Counsel can only be fired for good cause by a senior Justice Department official, and the reason must be provided in writing."

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz warned Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to raid President Trump´s personal lawyer´s office is an assault on the privileged lawyer-client relationship. Dershowitz said on Fox News that he believes the decision to raid Michael Cohen´s office would be a sign that Mueller is trying to turn Cohen against Trump.

City officials in Los Angeles are on a quest to reduce the effects of climate change by painting some of its streets in a light-colored, heat-reducing sealcoat.

LOS ANGELES — “Dreamer” Marco Villada Garibay left the country on the U.S. government’s promise of a possible green card. Now he’s trapped in Mexico and might never be allowed to return. Villada, 34, came to the United States — the only country he knows — illegally from Mexico at age 6. This is where he went to school; where he worked and paid taxes; and, most significantly, where he met his husband, Israel Serrato. “From the beginning,” Villada says, “I knew that Israel was my home, that that’s where I belong.” In 2013, Villada received protection from deportation under

The Mark Zuckerberg who arrived at the Hart Senate Office Building on Tuesday afternoon very much resembled an adult. His hair was cut short. His dark-blue suit fit well. His presentation was polished, without glibness or arrogance. He said, “Yes, Senator” and “No, Senator,” with the slightly bemused deference of a curator giving a museum tour. The android-smooth forehead, now thirty-three years old, still appeared unmarked by age or adversity, but there were no flip-flops or pajamas this time; a small loosening of Zuckerberg’s Facebook-blue tie knot was his only variation from the Capitol’s accepted forms. Despite this evident preparation, Zuckerberg
